Your 1995 K2500’s oil should be changed according to GMC’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your GMC K2500.

1995 GMC K2500 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my GMC K2500 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your GMC K2500 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change GMC K2500 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my GMC K2500 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
